    Biden Leads Trump in OH In Two Polls, KS Senate Race Tied

    Another day of a lot of polls and they have all been entered into the databases and there was basically no change to the Electoral College, but it is worth pointing out the state that seems on the verge of tipping to Biden, the state of Ohio. We had two polls, one from Fox News and one from Quinnipiac University that put Biden ahead of Trump.

    PRESIDENT – OHIO (Fox News)
    Joe Biden (D) 50%
    Donald Trump (R-inc) 45%

    PRESIDENT – OHIO (Quinnipiac)
    Joe Biden (D) 48%
    Donald Trump (R-inc) 47%

    The Fox News poll was done September 20-23 and the Quinnipiac poll was done September 17-21, both among likely voters. Also worth mentioning is a new poll from Data for Progress that shows Republicans might be in trouble in yet another US Senate seat, the state of Kansas.

    US SENATE – KANSAS (DFP)
    Barbara Bollier (D) 42%
    Roger Marshall (R) 42%

    This poll was done September 14-19 among 883 likely voters. One bright spot for Republicans is a new poll from The Trafalgar Group that shows Trump up by a single percentage point on Biden in Michigan.

    PRESIDENT – MICHIGAN (Trafalgar)
    Donald Trump (R-inc) 47%
    Joe Biden (D) 46%

    This poll was done September 20-22 among 1015 likely voters.

      The dilemma, for those wondering, is that everybody on the Left was dead wrong about foreign policy for decades, and they now might be forced to admit it.

      Does Dave really BELIEVE that?

    6. MichiganGuy says:

      David Wissing TDS has made him delusional. Ohio tipping.LOL Notice he doesn’t comment about the Michigan poll.

    7. Stonewall DW says:

      Dave W, the Fox News poll of OHIO was stinking D+8!!! Think man, use your brains. Trump would be leading Massachusetts if a poll reweighted it to be R+19.

    8. MichiganGuy says:

      Ok, I missed the fine print where he says one bright spot….

    9. Phil says:

      The data for progress poll is a real piece of work for Kansas. Has the senate race dead even and Trump up 4…..in Kansas? Guess Joe and Kamala need to get over there and campaign then. Kansas is winnable, baby! LOL I read some of the accompanying questions with the poll. Oh, brother. This has to be the mother of all push polls. Kind of surprised Dave posted this garbage.

    10. PhilS says:

      Dave W is a Trump Deranged Hack.

      Trump broke him in 2016.

    11. Justin says:

      “Interesting” question from the Emerson poll

      When asked who voters thought was more of a wimp, 57% said Donald Trump and 43% said Joe Biden.

      https://emersonpolling.reportablenews.com/pr/september-2020-biden-holds-his-lead-voters-split-on-supreme-court-nominee-timetable

    12. PhilS says:

      This moron thinks Trump is losing Kansas but winning Michigan.

      Biden level dementia.

    13. MrVito says:

      Every poll is right!

      Get the participation trophies lined up. The important thing is that you tried… or at least pretended to.

    14. Scooterboy says:

      It’s Dave’s blog he can post whatever he wants. I think Dave posts stuff just to get some of you fired up. I don’t think Dave is dumb enough to believe a lot of what he posts here. Or perhaps I’m giving him too much credit, and he really is that dumb. Only Dave knows.

    15. Phil says:

      Regarding Ohio. It was R+3 in 2016. In the Democratic year of 2018 it went to R+5!

      Now we’re supposed to believe it is suddenly D+8? Riiiiight.

      Baris says Trump is ahead and it isn’t even close. Says working class voters are as solid as ever for Trump.

      Flush this piece of garbage.

    16. PhilS says:

      Dave is really that dumb. You label garbage as “poll”, and he laps it up.

    17. Justin says:

      I wish Baris would reveal the Ohio numbers he is seeing.

    18. Bitterlaw says:

      Dave’s blog. Dave’s choice on what to post. He has kept this circus going for more than 16 years. We don’t have to agree with him. He does not kick anybody out for criticizing him. Anybody who can do a better job can start their own blog.

    19. PhilS says:

      Trump double digits in Ohio.

    20. PhilS says:

      Here comes Dave’s sock puppet.

    21. MrVito says:

      Just so everyone knows, Dave means it is in danger of flipping in his average up there at the top.

    22. PhilS says:

      Nobody said Dave doesn’t have the right to post whatever garbage he finds tasty.

      This moron constructed his own strain.

    23. PhilS says:

      **strawman**

    24. Bitterlaw says:

      It is interesting that PhilS posts on a site he thinks is run by a moron. It is more interesting that he changed his handle to begin posting here again.

    25. Big E says:

      Here Here! There is more information and honest discussion this site than many other blogs. Trolls not included. I have been following this blog for 10 plus years. This site encourages people to research and seek truth.

    26. PhilS says:

      Dave’s sock puppet is hurt. Suick it up, moron

    27. Phil says:

      What was the old handle? My guess is it was “Trump”. Moron was also his favorite word.

    28. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzzzz. Internet tough guys come and go at HHR. IP 727, Gary Maxwell, MFG, LaZebra, michael corleone, etc.

    29. PhilS says:

      Go to bed, Dave’s sock puppet.

    30. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – I suspect IP or MFG.

    31. Bitterlaw says:

      Mr. Vito – I did not try to take your job as the HHR sock puppet.

    32. PhilS says:

      You make as much sense as a Biden press conference.

    33. Phil says:

      Yeah, I forgot about MFG….a real dick. That’s possible.

    34. PhilS says:

      You don’t even know what a sock puppet is.

    35. Phil says:

      Maybe make PhilS an honorary A-hole. I just don’t want him in the clubhouse.

    36. Justin says:

      Baris tweeted that if the election were today, the Fox poll for Ohio would be 10 points off.

      Does that mean he is showing Trump + 5 in Ohio?

      If so, that isn’t overly comforting for PA or even IA.

    37. MrVito says:

      I’m supposed to be MDs sock puppet, but he has abandoned me.

      GRRRRRRRRAAAAAAHHHH!

      WHO AM I?

    38. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil- An a-hole like PhilS does not deserve to be elevated to A-hole status.

    39. Phil says:

      Justin, Baris said last Friday he thought Trump would win Ohio by 6 and that it wasn’t close. Said he thought Trump carries Pennsylvania by around 80K votes or nearly double what it was last time. Said his polling showed trump carrying Erie County by double digits whereas he carried it by just 2 last time.

    40. Bitterlaw says:

      MD lost his way. He is a good guy. Both can be true.

    41. Phil says:

      Bitter, after further consideration I think you are probably right.

    42. jason says:

      Dave’s blog. Dave’s choice on what to post. He has kept this circus going for more than 16 years. We don’t have to agree with him. He does not kick anybody out for criticizing him. Anybody who can do a better job can start their own blog.”

      Exactly.

      Start your own damm blog and just post the polls you like, see how many people will be interested in that. Otherwise stop whining and GFYs.

      And btw, “On the verge of tipping Ohio” is the correct interpretation of that poll, I have no problem with the wording. Personally, I think Trump will carry Ohio easily, but on the verge of tipping is what that poll says.

    43. jason says:

      MD, Corey, Kommie Kory, Robbie, Author had too much emotion invested in Trump losing and none of them ever got over the fact he didn’t.

      MD and Author became moonbats, Kommie Kory disappeared back to Canada, Corey and Robbie regurgitated MSM lies and garbage against Trump here for years.

      I confess MD surprised me the most. Author was always wobbly, I remember when he actually thought “fangate” was going to doom Scott. But MD once berated me for not being more supportive of Sharron Angle, he was so intent on getting rid of Harry Reid. He ranted about “blue frauds”. He wrote checks to conservatives everywhere.

      I believe he was once a true conservative. It is too bad he can’t see that Trump has actually delivered for conservatives. Or maybe he can but he is no longer a conservative.

      I considered him a friend here for years. Many here didn’t like him because he was combative and intolerant of different viewpoints.

      Many of those that didn’t like him are intolerant of different viewpoints.

    44. jason says:

      What was the old handle? My guess is it was “Trump”. Moron was also his favorite word.”

      Yeah but PhilS doesn’t have the same fixation with bodily functions that “Trump” did.

      I love it when someone recognizes my greatness.

    46. Big E says:

      Genius recognized. GFY

    47. Gatorjoel says:

      I have never posted here but have been coming to this site for the last 12 years. It is great and very grateful for Dave maintaining it and entertaining diverging views. The truth is none of you or me know what will happen with this election any more than one poll or another. Trump has run a terrible campaign, has mishandled the pandemic and left an economy in shambles. If he was not running against a nearly catatonic wannabe socialist, this election would not be close. The bulk of the polls show Trump is in major trouble and folks cannot ignore the fundamentals here. We are in a recession and a pandemic and presidents being hit with this stuff (not to mention the barrage of negative media Trump faces) usually don’t get re elected. Sorry to rain on everyone’s parade.

    48. jason says:

      Dang, we used to get a lot smarter trolls than “Gatorjoel”.

      You can condense all that gibberish into “I am one dumb m’fer”.

      We have a major problem here, the trolls are from the very bottom of the troll gene pool.

    49. gatorjoel says:

      And total uneducated morons here named Jason!!

    50. Phil says:

      We deserve high level trolls. We have not gotten a top of the line troll in weeks. It’s a little insulting.

      I have been on the HHR for more than 15 years. Don’t post much but follow the comments. There have been quite a few posters that have been here a while. Still miss Polaris and his ability to understand the true meaning of any poll.

    52. jason says:

      And total uneducated morons here named Jason!!”

      No, there is only one jason.

      GFY.

    53. NYCmike says:

      The one thing we should remember about the Trump rallies compared to 2016 is that they are being held in much smaller venues…..hopefully, that is NOT an important distinction.

    54. NYCmike says:

      gatorjoel,

      If there are that many voters who blame Trump for the current economic troubles, then this country deserves a Biden/Harris administration. Then we will really get the economy we think we should get……and we will get it good and hard!

    55. mnw says:

      I don’t think gatorjoel is quite as much of an arrogant ignoramus as TIPW; messy; or ProudObamacon yet. But the sample size is too small to draw a definitive conclusion.

    56. NYCmike says:

      Mr. Vito,

      was there any footage from Louisville? Not sure where to look.

    57. jason says:

      Gil, you can’t rest on your laurels, 2016 was eons ago.

      You will be expected to make the right call in 2020 if you want to continue to have bragging rights.

    58. jason says:

      I don’t think gatorjoel is quite as much of an arrogant ignoramus ”

      Anyone who says Trump “left the economy in shambles” is one dumb idiot.

    59. jason says:

      I am insulted the troll thinks there is more than one moron here named jason.

    61. Gatorjoel says:

      Forgot to say Trump will also lose PA. Those educated suburbanites and those folks in Philadelphia will be too much to overcome.

    62. jason says:

      So troll, considering you are grammar challenged and dumber than a doorknob, I assume you will be voting for Trump like the rest of us uneducated folk?

    63. Justin says:

      Goes from “no one knows what’s going to happen” to confidently making a prediction about Pennsylvania in two posts. What a fool.

    64. jason says:

      And besides, we are very educated here, on average.

      Tgca has like 152 PhDs, so it translates into an average of about 3 PhDs per regular poster here.

    65. gatorjoel says:

      Not a fool. I was being charitable in my initial post and ended up still be insulted. Now I can be correct. Trump will get crushed (not enough of those cowards ashamed to admit that they support him to overcome Biden’s substantial lead) and I can be a happily annoying troll on this site. Best of luck Y’all. You seem like nice folks, which is why I enjoy this site so much! Thanks very much Dave for a great site-you strike me as a very reasonable guy!!

    66. jason says:

      “The truth is none of you or me know what will happen with this election any more than one poll or another.”

      “Forgot to say Trump will also lose PA.”

      I hate trolls that can’t even get the trolling straight.

    70. jason says:

      Don’t bother. Everyone had you pegged as a dumb troll from the get go.

      No “corrections” necessary.

      From concern troll to full moonbat “deplorable” in 4 posts.

    74. MrVito says:

      Could be.

    75. Gatorjoel says:

      More insults. Can’t wait to troll this site on election night when Trump loses and for the next four years when the Democrats roll back all of the damage Trump and his cronies have done.

      The next big move in the polls will be after the first debate. If Biden is incoherent then there will be a mini Trump surge. It won’t matter what the media says afterward. It will a gamechanger because it will be obvious to everyone that the Biden that people knew will long gone. It will Hiden with Biden afterward.

      Reviewing Lagoa’s background and Barrett’s it seems clear to me Lagoa is the best bet,not only because of her ethnicity. She actually has a great deal more varied legal experience ( civil litigator, prosecutor,and judge for 14 years.)
      Barrett was primarily a law professor and legal writer; the latter scares me because I’m sure there are nuggets to be found that could be used against her, rightly or not.
      Lagoa’s cases were varied but not likely to have touched many hot button cultural issues,but her judicial restraint will be in the record.
      No offense to Barrett,but in an election year Lagoa seems easily the prudent choice. If Trump picks Barrett I think it shows he’s looking for a savage confirmation fight to sharpen the distinctions between the parties and to goad the Democrat’s to over reach and react.

    101. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Or because Trump thinks she better represents what a SC justice should do.

    107. PhilS says:

      There’s nothing to indicate that Trump wants a “savage” confirmation fight. Exactly the opposite, he wants a SC justice seated ASAP. His words.

    108. Stonewall DW says:

      Sometimes you just struggle to make a pick between two different excellent flavors of ice cream. Both are outstanding, but you have to pick one over the other.

      Both Barrett and Lagoa would be fine picks, but he has to in the end pick just one.

    109. PhilS says:

      Trump wants a SC justice seated asap, since he anticipates pre- and post-election litigation to reach SC soon.

    110. Tina says:

      I am happy with either pick. The article I read suggested Barrett is well known and therefore it could shorten the time needed to confirm, whereas Lagoa is less known to the senators, and more time might be needed, and in case no one noticed, time is of the essence.

      Dems will be pulling every dirty trick in the book to delay.

    135. Phil says:

      ACB clerked for Scalia! She has a substantial judicial history now– enuf to frighten & depress the eft, particularly on 2A issues.

      Souter was chosen precisely because he was a blank slate, & so “the DEMs will have nothing to beat him up with,” remember?

      Comparing ACB to Souter(!) is JUST INSANE! All I can get out of that is that it’s just a manifestation of free-floating anxiety.

    140. hugh says:

      With the liberal Murdock children and board members like Paul Ryan, it is only a matter of time until someone with money gets behind one of the more conservative new outlets. Fox will end up like the NBA or the Drudge Report losing massive viewers. Fox will then have to decide to go back to its roots or swing further left to capture part of the MSM audience. Many fox viewers cannot wait to switch ships, but have no where to go for TV viewing. Nothing is more appalling than the FOX new polls. I barely watch Fox anymore. I much prefer Fox Business, except for never trumper Neil Cavuto.

    141. Phil says:

      No, ACB is definitely no Souter. The question is does she morph into a Roberts.

    142. mnw says:

      Well ZH*t, Phil! How can anyone say that ANY nominee WON’T morph?

      I attach some hope to the fact that TRUMP is about to nominate ACB, not W,

      I read her dissent in a case (I think where she was all by her lonesome) in which she said an ex-felon retained his 2A right to own & possess a firearm, because the def’s fraud conviction didn’t justify revoking his 2A rights. I’m here to tell you, the left is ballistic about that one. I’m not even sure that I agree with her.

      Do you think Roberts would’ve been the lone dissent on a case like that?

    143. Gordon Allen says:

      Phil’s: then in that case Lagoa is the pick. She’s been in the legal arena for many years and as a Judge you can discern her legal philosophy.
      I the 5 years I was an Administrative Law Judge I never had any hot button issue s but anyone reading my decision could tell I was a judicial conservative. I have more faith in Lagoa to be one than Barrett, although I think both are likely fine.
      Lagoa though is probably a harder target to hit politically.

    144. PhilS says:

      If Trump is for Barrett (which nobody knows is true or not, we’ll all know Saturday at 5), then he is for (1) lockdowns, (2) forced vaccinations, (3) no-knock police raids, and (4) authoritarianism.

      This is what we are being sold.

    145. Phil says:

      Lagoa is indeed a much harder target to hit.

    146. mnw says:

      As Tina hinted, RAS today is 52/48 (same), & the Strong/Strong is 42/44 (Trump down a point or two, IIRC).

    147. mnw says:

      Souter got picked precisely because “he was a much harder target to hit.”

      The last the FBI assessed him in July 2010, he was a Russian Agent for FISA purposes. When he resurfaced in Dec. 2016, and they ID’d him as the PSS, they could only assess him as a Russian Agent.

      Trump is doing four campaign events in FL today, and also meeting with Legoa in FL today. How much time could he possibly give her today, if he is also doing four campaign stops in FL? This will be the first time Trump has met Legoa. So Trump is gonna meet with Legoa for a few minutes, then suddenly give her the nomination the next day? That would be rather reckless, even for Trump.

      The meeting with Legoa is lip-service to one of the WH’s staff.

      Barrett is the obvious pick. Barret is the best pick. Book it.

      Silver is free to say 1+1=5, but we all know its not true including that clown last night who showed up here bragging about Fox News’ A rating and Trafalgar’s C- rating at 538.

Silver and his hack followers are free to post here a list of polls from any other pollster if they wish. None of them are even close to this:

      CO:

      Hillary 45/Trump 44/Johnson 5/Stein 4

      FL:

      Hillary 46/Trump 50/Johnson 2/Stein 1

      Actual: 47.8/49/2/1 – Off just a bit on the margin.

      GA:

      Hillary 45/Trump 52/Johnson 2/Stein 0

      Actual: 46/51/3/0 – A bullseye.

      MI:

      Hillary 47/Trump 49/Johnson 3/Stein 1

      Actual: 47/48/4/1 – Another bullseye

      NV:

      Hillary 45/Trump 50/Johnson 3/Stein 1

      Actual: 47.5/46/3/0 – They got this one wrong. Nobody’s perfect, but others had it close too.

      NC:

      Hillary 44/Trump 49/Johnson 4/Stein 0

      Actual: 46/50/3/0 – Another bullseye

      OH:

      Hillary 44/Trump 49/Johnson 2/Stein 1

      Actual: 44/52/3/1 – Another bullseye

      PA:

      Hillary 47/Trump 48/Johnson 2/Stein 1

      Actual: 47/48/2/1 – Dead-Center Bullseye

      SC:

      Hillary 38/Trump 53/Johnson 3/Stein 1

      Actual: 41/55/2/1 – Another Bullseye

      UT:

      Hillary 30/Trump 40/Johnson 4/McMullin 25

      Actual: 27/46/4/22 – Excellent job in a very hard to poll race. On the edge of the Bullseye.

      1 Dead-center bullseye (PA)
      5 Bulleyes (OH, NC, MI, GA, SC)
      3 Just on or off the edge of the bullseye (FL, CO, UT)
      1 Missed the target (NV)

    168. Waingro says:

      #128, that is concerning, PhilS. This indicates she has strong conservative authoritarian leanings — particularly on 4th amendment issues.

      However, I would point out that, for example, Alito has been very similar in many of his rulings/sidings since he got to SCOTUS.

      If she is solid on 1st, 2nd Amendment, states rights and immigration issues — like an Alito has been — she will still be solid.

A woman will replace her, and its all about who gets their base fired up more in the process. At first I thought RBG’s passing could change up the race, but it doesn’t seem to be the case. We continue to be on two teams and we stick with our teams no matter what.

    181. Big Joe says:

      #182, DW-

      Do you know the reason 538 gives for rating Trafalgar a C-?

      BJ

    182. MrVito says:

      Because he’s a fraud. See 184.

    183. Stonewall DW says:

      185 – Because Silver is lying fraud. He has way too much power. Baris just pointed out from his personal conversations that some of the good University pollsters are terrified of Silver because if Silver gives them a B- instead of an A-, their funding for polls will dry up.

      So they all play the game, bow to Silver to get the grade and keep the funding flowing.

    184. MrVito says:

      I would like to see an investigation in Silvers ties to the betting markets. Remember his Election Day statement… my odds… uh… I’d look at the betting markets.

    185. Stonewall DW says:

      Baris just said that the betting markings are not listening to Silver this time. Silver is a lying fraud.

    186. Big Joe says:

      I understand that dislike of Silver here. I’m trying to find a reason backed by statistics for the low rating. So far, I’ve found this page:

      “We’ve Updated Our Pollster Ratings Ahead Of The 2020 General Election”
      https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/weve-updated-our-pollster-ratings-ahead-of-the-2020-general-election/

      Not much there but appears that emphasis is place on most recent races (2019 governor, 2020 primaries).

      Anyway, 538 is one of many aggregators, as usual I say trend is more important than the topline.

      BJ

    187. Stonewall DW says:

      “find a reason backed by statistics for the low rating”

      There isn’t. That’s the point. He IS A LYING FRAUD. That is why he is hated here, not because of a bad haircut or body odor or any other reason. He is hated because he uses his fraud to damage polling agencies who are accurate and show good news for Republicans, and to reward fraud pollsters by calling them accurate.

    188. Stonewall DW says:

      Baris hinting on his forthcoming Rust Belt polling:

      OH +6 Trump
      IA +3 Trump
      MI +1 for Biden
      PA +1 for Trump
      MN +2? (a little lead for Biden)

      Baris said the other day that Wisconsin tends to be a late breaking State. Along with Iowa. He said that both broke towards Trump in the last 2 weeks in 2016.

      He currently has Iowa at Trump + 3. That’s about where he had Iowa for Trump in 2016. Iowa ended up being +10 for Trump I do believe.

      He said he believes Trump will end up winning Iowa, but it will vote to the left of Ohio this year, unlike in 2016.

    221. Greymarch says:

      #221: Yep. Remember during that first debate, GWB kept leaning over his podium, like he didnt really care? Kerry won the first debate. GWB won the next two.

      It’s common for the president to lose the first debate. The president usually doesnt prep as much as the challenger.

      Obama lost the first debate to Romney, then Obama won the next two debates.

      Reagan lost the first debate to Mondale, then made a wonderful showing in the seceond debate.

    233. Robbie says:

      Win or lose, I hope Trump publicly fires Fauci after the election. If Biden wins, he can always hire back the old fool if he wants. Regardless, Fauci needs to fired. And states governed by Republicans should publicly repudiate the suggestions made by Fauci and Birx, for that matter.

      No one has done more to damage the economic and societal fabric of American society than Fauci. He was the author of the disastrous shutdown policy that caused 50 million people to seek unemployment. He even said the fallout from the shutdown was a “minor economic inconvenience”. Well, I’m about to lose my job and I don’t see it as minor.

      Just as terrible as the economic fallout, an entire generation of students are having their educational experience ruined because of policies pushed by Overlord Fauci. Over the next five years, you can bet your rear end the number of people who attend college falls because many students will give up on education after this disaster.

      Fauci’s fingerprints are all over the destruction of the country. He doesn’t deserve another Presidential Medal of Freedom. He deserves scorn and humiliation. At a moment of crisis, the “expert” chose pseudoscience. That’s all a lockdown ever was, pseudoscience. What will he offer next? Leeching?
